How To Help

Volunteers contribute to Safe Harbor in the following capacities: Board Members, Event Planning Committee Members, Day-of-Event Helpers, and Child Life Activity Assistants. We also depend on the help of a yearly UW School of Social Work Masters Intern.

We appreciate the time and talent invested by our capable, committed volunteers. Without the help of these wonderful people, Safe Harbor would not be able to accomplish its mission of reducing trauma to children who are victims of abuse, neglect, or witnesses to crimes.

Volunteer Opportunities

Child Life Activity & Office Assistant Position Description

Volunteers are required to dedicate 2.5 to 3 hours per shift each week at a regularly scheduled time between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
